This book was soooo good! Mitchell and Virtue were doing good until Mitchell's grandparents who raised him passed away. The family blames Mitchell and he takes a downward turn. He begins to drink and beat Virtue. She leaves him and moves on.

Chris has a business that he is trying to run when his father passes away and he is left to run it. When he hires Mitchell it is one of the best decisions he has made, not only are they business partners but they become close friends.

This book covers topics like alcoholism that leads to physical and mental abuse casted upon his wife (what he loves) because of sudden tragic events. In the early chapters, things were a bit rushed to me and incidents thrown at me and had to reread it twice the first 30+ pages to make sure I got it. Overall, it is a good story.

This is such a good book! A story of deliverance and forgiveness that grabs you at the onset and flows flawlessly. Alcoholism, several forms of abuse, infidelity and lying are just a few of the issues touched upon; and though forgiveness is ultimately granted the seriousness of the issues isn't downplayed. Looking forward to reading more of her books.

This is a very good book that deals with the important issues, of alcoholism, domestic abuse, and forgiveness from a Christian perspective. I really enjoyed it. This is the first book I've read by this author, but I may check out some of her other books later on.

I really enjoyed this book! The end put me in such a good mood. The very next day after finishing this book I went in search for another book by Kendra Norman Bellamy. Im currently reading In Greene Pastures.
